I am a Dream Cage

I am a dream cage
With the wings of soul,
Dream flies,
‘Tis an internal phenomenon,
Yet seems to come in, through eyes,

What life, a blank page,
Inked by the hidden sage,
With dream it rise,
Act of sublime and wise,

Dream must not be an ice that melts,
Dream should be water to be frozen into ice,
Dream, the life's foot step; an indicating machine,
Be cool, keep patience, be nice.

    Thoughtful write. Very true said,
    Dream must not be an ice that melts,
    Dream should be water to be frozen into ice,

    Dream should make one stronger like ice but cool and patient as well. Thanks for sharing the valuable thoughts. (Report) Reply
